I need a important suggestion regarding ex parte divorce. My wife managed to get ex parte divorce from me, order has been passed. I am yet to receive a certified copy. Notice was served upon me, i tried to avoid taking notice for almost a year, but somehow they could manage and deliver it. Now, I applied for set aside petition. My question is will I succeed. I applied in the family court.
What reasons can I quote for not appearing in the court earlier? also Can she file maintainence and DVC case on me now, if I am able to set aside the ex parte divorce ?
Wanted to know if it is a wise thing to do, I am working in USA and currently in India. I want to assign a GPA and drag the divorce case so that she comes for some settlement.
She is granted alimony in the ex parte divorce, can I only contest for alimony ?
